Churches Together in Clapham (CTiC)
There are many different Christian denominations, but all have the same basic calling - to worship God, to share the good news about Jesus Christ and to work for the good of all people. Churches Together in Clapham is part of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland which is the umbrella organisation helping to bring these denominations together under Christian unity.
Through CTiC, St Paul's has been involved in Robes since 2011, providing shelter and meals once a week for several months in our church hall. In 2019/20 Robes looked after 98 guests who would otherwise have slept rough at different venues with local volunteers providing food, shelter and support.
In the winter of 2021/22 St Paul’s supported the guests of the Robes Project on Monday evenings from 17 January until 28 March 2022. There were 18 guests and because of the Covid-related difficulties of hosting them in individual churches and church halls, they are accommodated in a hostel in Canary Wharf and St Paul's provided them with food vouchers.
This year St Paul's is again hosting guests in person on Wednesday evenings in the church hall in November and December providing them with a warm supper, accommodation and a hot breakfast in the morning.
A family-like community providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in our area.
At their centre on St Alphonsus Road they provide for the immediate needs of those in desperate circumstances with safe shelter, food, warmth, clothing, laundry and showers.
The team at Ace of Clubs is skilled and focused in linking people in with a wide range of services including accommodation, welfare, rehab, training, healthcare and many others.
Every Autumn they have a Harvest Appeal to fill their pantry in preparation for the colder months and collect goods on Harvest Sunday which are donated to the appeal.
